STORIES of long-lost brewers and pub landlords will be recounted this Sunday, when a new guided walk is held at York Cemetery in Cemetery Road.

The "Brewers & Publicans" walk will be at 2pm, and will include information about people who made and sold beer in York from 1837 onwards.

Jenny Hawkins, who will lead the walk, said: "We will be visiting 20 graves, mostly publicans' but with three or four brewers'. There will be information about the pubs, the areas they were in and some other bits of interest."

The walk costs £1 for children and £2.50 for adults, and it is hoped it will become an annual event.
